One record set as auction dollars are slightly up from 2012 figures

One record was broken at this year's Huntington County 4-H Fair Auction.

The sale of Lane Burnau's grand champion market lamb for $4,300 eclipsed the previous record of $1,775, which was set in 2009.

Although the lot at this year's auction was smaller than last year's - 714 to 769 - it managed to generate higher sales. This year's final premium total was $230,105, up a tick from 2012's closing mark of $229,260.

Following is a breakdown of averages and comparisons for each breed that was sold at auction on Thursday, July 25.
